Is Jared Leto’s Joker Real?
Suicide Squad and Batman Vs Superman are the most anticipated movies of 2016. They will kick start the shared DC comics Universe which will later have movies like Justice League, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam. The trailer of these two films was released in 2015 and since then fans have given a very interesting theory on one of the most popular villains of DC universe -The Joker. There is an interesting theory that Jared Leto’s Joker is not real joker and here are 5 points that proves this fact:
Desperately wants to go ahead of Heath ledger, Jack Nicholson. Inspired from Killing Joke.
Jared Leto’s Joker is Tattooed
The very first image of Jared Leto’s Joker was released in 2015 and it met negative reviews. Almost every fan of Joker was depressed rather annoyed to see those tattoos on his body. Since when did the clown prince of crime got attracted toward tattoos. The ‘damaged’ tattoo on the forehead of Jared Leto’s Joker looks awkward. Added to the insult is the ‘HA HA’ tattoo on his chest. Maybe Jared Leto’s Joker is not real Joker and he is just trying to fill in the boots of the real madness that the joker is.
Jared Leto’s Joker have Bleached Skin
Ever since its debut in 1940, Joker has maintained a unique and classy look. Joker wears makeup to hide his disfigured face. He outlines his lips and cheeks with red lipstick that gives impression of a smiling face (even if scary). Jack Nicholson focused on these trademarks of Joker in 1989 Batman film. Late Heath ledger also followed the same path and rather focused on the insanity of Joker.But Jared Leto’s version of Joker is not at all the classic Joker that we all know about. Jared Leto’s Joker has bleached skin and he doesn’t look that much scary. He is surely not following the real joker’s footsteps.
Jared Leto Joker Drives Infinity G35 and have his own Goon Squad
Now this may not be much of a point but it is surely notable that Jared Leto’s Joker drives a super fast Infinity G35. Heath Ledger’s Joker and Jack Nicholson’s joker were not much of a fan of sports car. Added to this is the fact that Jared Leto’s Joker have his own goon squad to his jobs. Fans of Joker knows that the clown prince of Crime doesn’t trust anyone and carries out most of his crimes all by himself. Joker is insane and he find murdering and assaulting fun. So why he would hire a goon squad that would kill all his fun?
Jared Leto Joker Is Muscular
Joker’s appearance in comics is often skinny. The only time Joker was seen muscular was in Batman Asylum video game. He was not lean and muscular but rather big bulky muscular and that was because he took bane’s venom. Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson both went with the classic skinny appearance of Joker. Jared Leto’s version of Joker is muscular. In fact he is the most muscular Joker we have ever seen.
Connection Between Robin and Jared Leto’s Joker
Fans drew many similarities between the trailer of Suicide Squad and Batman Vs Superman Dawn of Justice. Of course the two characters common in both films are Joker and Batman. In Batman vs Superman trailer Batman is seen holding a piece of newspaper with a note written “You Let Your Family Die”.
From these two images it is clear that Batman’s famous sidekick Robin is no more. It is obvious that Joker Killed Robin much before the events of the film. But there are several fan theories that states “ROBIN IS JOKER”.
Taking all the above points in consideration it may be true that in fact Robin himself is Joker. The real Joker is dead. Christopher Nolan directed Batman trilogy and is producing Batman Vs Superman. So may be DCU will show that Heath Ledger’s Joker was real one and he died in The Dark Knight. At some point Batman’s sidekick Robin decides to go on the wrong side of law and this is when he decides to become the Clown Prince of Crime. The most obvious contenders are of Jason Todd (Robin who was Killed by Joker), Dick Grayson (who became Joker in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns) and Tim Drake (who is genetically encoded by Joker to extend his legacy).
